IM-#7 January 26, 2011,  IM-#30 April 4, 2008

Participants of SNC cash payments are eligible for Buy-In. The State of Missouri pays the costs of the Supplementary Medical Insurance (SMI) Premium if the participant is eligible for and participating in Part B of Medicare.

NOTE: Enter the correct OASDI claim number in the FAMIS system on the Income (FMX0) screen, when applicable, as this number is required to “buy-in” the participant.
